André Aleman

André Aleman (1975) is professor of Cognitive Neuropsychiatry at the Department of Neurosciences of the UMCG and the Department of Psychology of the University of Groningen. Aleman is an innovative brain researcher. His research into psychiatric disorders of perception, such as hallucinations in schizophrenia, is internationally renowned. His research field covers subjects such as suicide, ageing, schizophrenia and depression. One of Aleman’s achievements was to analyse the brains of schizophrenic patients who hear voices.

Shortly after having gained his PhD cum laude, he was awarded a Vidi grant by NWO to conduct research into emotional disorders in schizophrenia. In 2006 he was awarded a European Young Investigator Award by the European Science Foundation for research into decreased illness awareness in psychotic disorders. In 2012, his book Het Seniorenbrein (The Older Brain) was published, in which Aleman addresses the question of what is going on inside our head as we age. Aleman demonstrates that the decline is often less serious than we tend to believe.

In late 2011, Aleman received a EUR 1.5 million Vici grant from NWO. Aleman received the grant for his research into the underlying mechanisms of apathy in schizophrenia. Apathy is a common problem in other psychiatric and neurological disorders, such as depression and early dementia, as well. In 2017 Aleman has been elected as member of the KNAW.
